The Recycled Art of CeeBee

The same mentality of admiration and discernment of the fact that our clothing tells a story does not only apply to apparel! The finishing topping for any outfit is thereby classified to be a complete look with the right accessories; those items too may carry a history beyond the "it season" or vintage era. I am talking about recycled handbags!

Enter CeeBee, the Italian based ethical luxury handbag and accessories brand founded by designer Carmen Björnard. The Ceebee collection is Björnard's way of expressing her awareness of waste disposal, and her innovative fashion thinking for the recycled soul.
CEEBEE
She cleverly uses materials such as, ancient pages of periodicals, vintage magazines and newspapers to create functional bags with artful and dated visuals. There's also styles with bamboo-made handles, and bags where both the front and back newspaper panels are entirely visible, which immediately catches your attention.

I remember coming across this label some time ago, but had never shed the spotlight on the collection. I think the concept is brilliant  a sustainable mission that aids culture as a whole by providing labour to workers without harmful surroundings.

From the collection you'll find items from printed clutches and iPhone cases to film inspired placemats and large totes. With the use of natural and organic materials CeeBee's environmentally sound ethos attracts women from diverse lifestyles.

Above are my top pick's from the CeeBee collection.

    I didn't know this label...thank you for the introduction! The creations are so stylish and original. I think that the small doctor bag is my favourite...

  29. Great idea! I'll certainly use it! The doctor bag is so sweet! And as a coincidence, my curtains fell down... and while I'm waiting for new ones this week, the window is covered with... newspaper! And I thought it would be a great background for fashion pictures!

  34. Years ago when I worked at an Eco-friendly clothing boutique I discovered this Italian company's amazing products- alas at the time they didn't sell to the U.S. So I am stoked to see now they do! Amazing eye on how they translate the paper into beautiful functional handbags and objects!
